The policy for awarding teacher assessed grades - Summer 2021 - and Information policy - JCQ (Joint Council for Qualifications) for parents and students can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.

Following the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the UK government has decided that the Summer 2021 examination series will not go ahead as planned. Instead, teachers will determine student grades, based upon a range of evidence verified by the school. These results will then be reviewed by the exam boards who designed each course, before awarding the final grades which reflect performance on content taught, and allow students to confidently progress to the next stage of education or into employment.

The OFQUAL Student Guide to Awarding - Summer 2021 outlines the arrangements in place for awarding grades in summer 2021, and where you can go for additional information. This can be downloaded at the bottom of the page.

Replacing Certificates


National regulations state that schools only have to store students’ exam certificates for one year; after that they have to be shredded and students have to apply to the exam boards directly to replace them.

It helps if you know which subjects you studied with each Awarding Body, but it’s not essential as there are only four main Awarding Bodies and they can usually track your achievements quite quickly when you give them your personal details.

Each Awarding Body has application forms and more information on their websites
